Let's Give a Tea
Delightful mid-twentieth century educational film about etiquette. Formal social occasions still occur in the twenty-first century but there is very little instruction in the form so often the host/hostess relies on books or a parent for guidance. Also, note the room arrangements, furniture, and styles of hair and dress. A nice historical view of the period and the social mores of it viewed from the Southern perspective.
